ABOUT THE AGILE ALMANAC

The Agile Almanac - Book 1 became an Amazon #1 Best Seller just days after its on December 15, 2015. The Agile Almanac - Book 2 is set to be released on October 21, 2017 and is expected to also become an Amazon #1 Best Seller within hours.

If you want to understand Agile best practices and the science behind them, the Agile Almanac is an unbiased, well-researched 3-volume series (Book 1 - Single Teams, Book 2 - Scaled Agile, and Book 3 - Agile Enterprise) of the most used and proven standards, produced in a way that avoids the accusatory dogmatic viewpoints often expressed by the evangelists on any side of the Agile versus Traditional battlefield. The Almanac series has collected and codified the various Agile choices and options available at the intersection of Lean Principles, Product Development and Project Management.

The Almanac extends that thought leadership into non-software environments and presents the information in an easily accessible and immediately applicable fashion in order to serve as a Field Guide for practitioners in the real world!

What makes the Agile Almanac the most significant series available to Agile Practitioners?

First, because, at the highest level, the Agile domain can be divided into three sub-domains, namely, Agile 1.0 for Single-team Projects and Exam Prep, Agile 2.0 for Programs with Multi- and Virtual-team Environments, and Agile 3.0 for Portfolio Management and Enterprise Scaling, each domain is covered in its own book in the Agile Almanac series. Each book allows Practitioners and Organizations to select precisely the content they need and zero in on applying it in the ways best suited to the context of their environments.

Book 1 provides detailed coverage of Scrum, eXtreme Programming (XP), Lean Software Development (LSD), Kanban and Hybrid approaches.

Book 2 supplies unique, side-by-side, coverage of "The Big 8" approaches to Scaled Agile, including practical expert reviews of:

Scrum of Scrums (SoS)

Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe®)

Disciplined Agile (DA)

Large Scale Scrum (LeSS)

Kanban

DevOps

• The Project Management Institute, A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge, (PMBOK® Guide) - Sixth Edition, Project Management Institute, Inc. 2017

Agile Integration Framework (AIF)

Second, Book 2 is a collaboration of the best and brightest minds working with Agile in the current environment of organizations. It has benefitted from the magnanimous and generous investment of time and expertisefrom Jeff Sutherland, Scott Ambler, Bas Vodde, and Dean Leffingwell’s co-founder Drew Jemilo and Inbar Oren helping the Almanac co-authors get the chapter on their approaches accurate and concise so you can quickly discern which one is the best fit for your needs. They really are that committed to your success!

The Agile Almanac series is committed to being the professional Rosetta stone that makes your personal development library complete!
